Abstract
Anna Cora Mowatt was almost forgotten by the end of the nineteanth century. Early in tha 1900's Mr. Raphael A. Weed, a New York artist, became interested in Mrs. Mowatt, and he set out to collect data, letters, pictures, and books relating to her career as an actress. Mr, Weed interviewed people who had known Mrs. Mowatt personally. But discouraged by William Winter's disparaging attitude toward Mrs. Mowatt's ability as an actress, Mr. Weed dropped the work he had so well and enthusiastically begun. Bo further interest was evinced in her until 1922, when Mr, Ueorge Soheerer began a orltloal study, After a time, he, toe, gave up his work on Mrs, Mowatt, and when Z wished to bring out a complete biography, Kr, Soheerer graciously turned over to me hie materials.
